First skate ski of the winter. The 400 meter climb to the crĂȘte du poulet and Luisard is always good to get the red blood cells working. Took the Cret piste at the top, this was a bit rock and roll with an icy descent. The Luisards loop was good but didn't have time for a second tour as the climb at the start is a bit of a wall.


A couple of bare patches on the climb in the usual spots. Ramiettes only very partially open. Roads clear. Not too many people about.
